Emmerdale viewers have seen the grooming storyline between Maya Stepney and Jacob Gallagher develop over the last couple of months. Last night, fans tuned into see Maya and Jacob get closer as they planned to take their relationship to a seexual level.
But at the last minute, the school teacher changed her mind and promised Jacob they could take the next step today instead. This week, scenes will show village residents gather to celebrate Jacob’s birthday and as he turns 16 he is keen to reach another milestone – sleeping with Maya.
Whilst some viewers think David Metcalfe. Leyla Harding, Tracy Metcalfe or Liv Flaherty will find out due to the being close to Maya and Jacob, there is a strong possibility someone on the outside of the circle could be the culprit.
Before Maya was in a relationship with David, she arrived in Emmerdale married to Dr. Liam Cavanagh. The pair suffered from several marital problems and Maya then instated an affair with David.
After finding out about her infidelity, he declared a divorce and the doctor quickly declared a hatred against David. To add to this, Liam’s daughter Leanna Cavanagh is not her ex-stepmum’s biggest fan.
Having never got along when Maya was married to her dad, tensions always run high whenever the two share a scene. Viewers were led to believe Leanna was the problem, but as months have gone bye, recent events have shown she was correct to be concerned about Maya’s dark, manipulative side.
Liam is now in a relationship with Bernice Blackstock and Leanna has finally become friends with her daughter Gabby Thomas. Gabby is best friends with Liv and previous to Liv and Jacob getting together, Jacob lost his virginity to the former.
The fallout resulted in the friends becoming estranged and the two are trying their best to get their friendship back on track, but Gabby is wary of Jacob.
